Painting choice for Royal Academy Summer Show.

Every year, the Royal Academy in London has as Summer Exhibition where anyone can submit up to two paintings for juried application to enter.  I have decided that in 2015 I'm going to enter one painting (it costs £25 to enter one!!) and have been producing (now five) watercolour paintings since I got back from Paris last May.
They are.....

 1.  Morning Storm.

 2. Montmartre Church

 3.  Doorway 1

 4.  Ile de Cite

5.  Doorway 2

I am now opening the above paintings to a vote - the one that gets the most "likes" will be the one I enter!!!

Bear in mind though, that in 2013, 10,000 people entered and 1,000 got included in the exhibition, and in 2014, 12,000 people applied and 600 got chosen!!  The odds are SMALL!!!!


  1. Good for you! The odds might be small but then a small mouse has a good chance of squeaking through! Let's see... my first choice would be Doorway #2 and second choice would be Morning Storm.

  2. Wow! Good luck! My votes are:

    Doorway #2
    then Ile de Cite

    Great work!

  3. Good for you for entering. I vote for doorway 2.
